the v2 is a piece of shit. have you actually looked inside the pipe? the secondary outer layer doesn't go anywhere or do anything but resonate the sound going into the primary tube. marketing at its best. sound amplifying and affecting velocity and circulation of air in primary tube?? okay..?? stay with a cai.AkumaMax said:Right now AEM V2 a nice intake beast sounding intake. Tad bit more performance. Great for people who are afraid of hydrolocking. I'm going to switch to CAI soon though Winter has shown me the mucho power loss with the V2.

I installed the V2 on my 04 rsx type s...Contrary to what people think about marketing ploys...you can't tell me that i don't know how my car rides. I'm one of those guys that drives around at the ass crack of dawn purely cuz i love driving it and i love how it feels. I drove it around for a year with the stock air box and after the v2 install i could def. feel a little more push. Not as much on the lower rpm side as the highs. Once *****h opens up u can tell that the intake along with the technology of vibration assisted air induction works to a certain extent. Granted i don't have headers and exhaust right now...but i can really feel the car push itself easier from 5,600-redline. All arguments put aside...we're talking about 1 single piece by itself which everyone knows really does nothing huge to the total performance of the car. So what does that leave....nothing but sound baby...and let me tell you the sound is crazy once the *****h kicks in. I may not have a car with the craziest amount of power but it's funny how some people that see my car and start to test will juss slowly back off once i open up the *****h and let off that sound. The best way to describe the sound is intimidating.
i'm planning to switch over to the apexi power filter too. how do you like it?mRek9R said:my VTEC must be different from your V T E C H then...sorry to be an ass but in order to love, you must know how to and in order to appreciated honda's VTEC/ i-VTEC technology you MUST learn how to spell. It' right in your engine bay: i-VTEC. Still to this day the original AEM CAI makes more power. I actually went farther and switched the k/n filter to Apex-i's Power Intake. If only the Type-S intake manifold design didnt have that abrupt ending, who knows how much power that could've net us. I"m more of a D-series guy, but i know k20s just as well. 8)
dude..i apologize man, i had a rough morning...hehe..what the hell am i talking about..i have a SRI....hahaha :bh ....it's gotta be the World Selects...8)kasual said:Cut me some slack i'm in korea right now...jet lagged as hell....Sorry i don't know what i was thinking...But as far as what your telling me about the v2...it just doesn't make sense that a company would waste any amount of money on marketing on a part that your telling me is inferior to what was already there. I mean they must know that there are dyno's right? and that people would eventually find out what's really going on? Possible lawsuits for false advertisement? Sorry if i sound like an ass again but maybe your telling me this after you took both to the dyno at $60-$100 dollars an hour and actually compared the two with real numbers. It's not likely that anybody would do that for just a cold air intake but there is the possiblity that maybe you did. And no i don't think your an ass for commenting on my vtec mistake i deserved that one...no hard feelings....we're all honda enthusiasts right
